Autumn Bucket List for a 3 year old

Autumn Bucket List for a 3 year oldI am enjoying this bucket list idea, not only does it give me time to think and plan what I am going to do with Monkey on my precious days off. But it also appears to ensure more of it gets done! I have been successfully ticking off the Summer Bucket List I wrote a few months ago. So I thought it would be good to do something similar for Autumn especially as it feels as though the Summer weather has left us already this year.

  1. Visit Slindon Pumpkin Festival
  2. Carve a pumpkin
  3. Watch fireworks
  4. Build a bonfire
  5. Have a Halloween party & wear fancy dress
  6. Play in leaves
  7. Make some leaf art
  8. Go on a nature scavenger hunt
  9. Play with Autumn scented play dough
  10. Sort leaves by colour
  11. Go apple picking
  12. Make cameralised apples
  13. Go for a hay ride
  14. Visit a maize maze and get lost
  15. Do some star gazing
  16. Make our own jam jar lanterns
  17. Try out Geocaching at our local National Trust property
  18. Try out sparklers for the first time
  19. Visit the theatre
  20. Collect horse chestnuts and have a conker fight
  21. Take some pictures of Monkey in a Pumpkin Patch

I would love to hear whats on your bucket list this Autumn – enjoy
